SUMMARY REPORT FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E February 1963 April 15, 1963


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the increase in United States exports of domestic
merchandise from $992.1 million in January to $2,081.0 mil-
lion in February,1 an increase of about 110 percent, reflected
substantial increases in exports of all of the economic classes
of commodities, and was due in part to accelerated export activ-
ity aimed at reducing the backlog of shipments built up during
the dock strike which began December 23, 1962 and continued
through January 25, 1963. The February 1963 domestic merchan-
dise export total was about 19 percent higher than the February
1962 total of $1,754.2 million. Included in these totals are
data on Department of Defense Military Assistance Program-
Grant-Aid shipments.

With Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
February exports of domestic merchandise were valued at $1,996.8
million, about 112 percent higher than the January total of
$941.5 million.

From January to February, exports of finished manufactures rose
from $617.6 to $1,231.2 million reflecting increases in exports
of most of the individual commodities included in this economic
class. Some of these increases were as follows: Aircraft,
parts and accessories, from $92.8 to $145.4 million; construc-
tion, excavating, mining, oil field and related machinery, from




the February 1963 issue of Report No. FT 900-E for seasonally-
adjusted figures on total exports, excluding Iflitary Assistance Program-
Grant-Aid shipments. Seanonally-edjusted data are not available on a
camidity basis.


$30.6 to $75.9 million; passenger cars, from $5.8 to $23.8 mil-
lion; automobile parts for assembly and replacement, from $42.6
to 165.6 million; motor trucks and busses, from $5.6 to $25.6
million; mntalworking machines and parts, except machine tools
and parts, ir ._ '-... to $22.5 million; paper and manufactures,
from $13.6 to $26.4 million; textile, sewing and shoe machinery,
from $5.2 to $14.5 million; cotton cloth, from $4.3 to $11.6
million; and radio and television apparatus, from $26.4 to $36.1
million.

Exports of semimanufactures rose from $131.9 to $294.9 million
due in part to increases in exports of plastics and resin mate-
rials, from $9.9 to $28.4 million; distillate and residual fuel
oil; form $5.8 to $17.7 million; iron and steel plates, sheets
and strips, from $5.6 to $16.5 million; synthetic rubber, from
$4.9 to $15.2 million; wood pulp, from $9.0 to $18.3 million;
aluminum semimanufactures, from $4.7 to $13.6 million; copper
semimanufactures, from $7.3 to $15.6 million; and industrial
chemicals, exclusive of Special Category Type 1, from $19.0 to
$27.3 million. Substantial increases in exports of wheat, from
$24.9 to $93.7 million; and corn, from $15.6 to $49.7 million
accounted for the bulk of the increase in exports of crude food-
stuffs from $71.7 to $197.7 million. Exports of crude materials
advanced from $102.3 to $226.7 million, owing chiefly to in-
creases in exports of oilseeds, from $10.4 to $53.5 million;
unmanufactured cotton, from $30.3 to $69.6 million; and unmanu-
factured tobacco, from $5.8 to $24.2 million. Exports of manu-
factured foodstuffs rose from $68.5 to $130.6 million as in-
creases were reported in exports of most of the individual items
included in this economic class. Some of the more notable of
these increases were manuf odstuffs, exported for re-
lief or charity, from 9 ion; meat and meat prod-
ucts, from $6.2 to ,3p l t flour, from $3.6 to
$10.1 million. -


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as nongovernment ship-
meats to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of
Defense Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments (for which separate fig-
ures are shown in the footnotes of this report), Mutual Security Program economic as-
sistance shipments, and shipments of agricultural commodities under P.L. 480 (The
Trade Development and Assistance Act of 1954, as amended) and related laws. (The
separate information which is available on exports under P.L. 480 and related laws
may be obtained from the Economic Research Service and the Foreign Agricultural
Service of the Department of Agriculture. Shipments to United States armed forces
and diplomatic missions abroad for their own use are excluded from export statistics.
United States trade with Puerto Rico and United States possessions is not included in
this report, bat the export trade of Puerto Rico with foreign countries is included as a
part of the United States export trade. Merchandise shipped in transit through the
United States between foreign countries, not entered as imports, is not included in ex-
port statistics.
VALUATION: The valuation definition used in the export statistics is the value at
the seaport, border point, or airport of exportation. It is based on the selling price
(or coat if not sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and other charges to the
pet of exportation. Transportation and other costa beyond the United States port of
exportation are excluded. None of the values have been adjusted for changes in
price level.

RELIABILITY: The resented in this repo are 'ed partly on sample
data and there are a ct to pling variati at m case them to differ
somewhat from the renul wich wo n suwon from processing all export
documents. For the figures in tJreport the pling variability can be ig-
nored since the probable varhi i tis either less than $50,000 (the
largest variation from rounding of figures or eas than a trivial percentage of the in-
dividual totals shown. In addition to the effects of sampling variation, the data in
this report are subject to errors from such sources as the carry-over of data from
month to month, errors in reporting or processing, the estimation of shipments valued
under $100 (estimated data for such shipments are included in the over-all export
total and in the totals for "Finished manufactures" and "All other finished manufac-
tures, exclusive of Special Category Type 1* but excluded from other totals), and the
omission of parcel post shipments valued under $50. Although the effect of such
errors on the rounded totals in this report is probably small, the possibility of inac-
curacy should be taken into account, particularly in using figures of relatively small
magnitude.

Further information regarding coverage, valuation, compilation procedures and preci-
sion of export data is contained in the foreword of Report No. FT 410. For complete
statement, see foreword in Foreign Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
